Blizzard DotA aiming for Heart of the Swarm launch, says StarCraft boss

StarCraft II lead producer Chris Sigaty has said that Blizzard DotA is still in development at the company.

"We basically put it back up in the shop and did some massive overhauls to some things, which I'm not going to go into specific detail about," Sigaty told Joystiq during the first media showcase of the second story chapter for StarCraft II, Heart of the Swarm.

He told the site that it was aiming to have the mod ready for release around the time Heart of the Swarm launches, which looks set to be a 2012 launch.

In terms of it actually requiring HotS to play it, Sigaty went mum.

"We're not even talking about the business level decision of it at this point."

Blizzard Dota was one of four mods that was announced during Blizzcon last year for Wings of Liberty. All of those mods bar Dota have since launched.

Its development also ties in with that of true sequel Dota 2, being made by Valve.
